Book 10 Chapter 13 The Descent of the Emptiness Realm
The High Priestess of the Snowy Lotus Cult, Teng Qingshan, Li Jun, and Pei Hao were all watching the battle from the army camp of the Heavenly God Palace.
The battlefield in the distance was already reeking of blood.
The two Emptiness Realm Experts of Hong Tian City rode the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse into the midst of the Heavenly God Palace’s army and wantonly slaughtered the soldiers in the surroundings. Then the two brothers of Hong Tian City noticed Pei San, Li Chao, and the great monk, Su Mengte, approaching on the back of the Six Legged Bladelike Chi. However, instead of facing the enemy head-on, the two brothers of Hong Tian City leaped onto the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse again.
Once again, the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse drilled the ground and disappeared from the surface of the earth.
“Chase after them!” Pei San commanded. The Six Legged Bladelike Chi carried the three people on its back and drilled underground. Simultaneously, the Godly Thunderbolt Hawk hovered in the sky.
“Eh?” Suddenly, the facial expressions of Pei Hao and the King of Beast changed.
“Oh, no.” Teng Qingshan frowned.
Under the control of his domain, Teng Qingshan noticed that the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi were both drilling into the ground at an exceedingly fast speed, one after the other. The physical structures of the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse and the Six Legged Bladelike Chi had been made so that they could drill the earth well. However, Teng Qingshan realized that the distance between the two was increasing continuously!
“The drilling speed of the Bladelike Chi is not as fast as that of the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse,” Teng Qingshan said with a frown.
“This is troublesome now.” Wu Hou’s expression darkened.
“What? What’s happening underground?” The High Priestess of the Snowy Lotus Cult asked hastily. “Fifth Uncle, what’s going on?”
Pei Hao frowned as he shook his head and said, “The drilling speed of Huhe’s Six Legged Bladelike Chi is much slower than that of the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse. As expected of the best earth-drilling demonic beast in the Land of the Nine Prefectures! The Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse’s drilling speed is incredibly fast. This time, it’s troublesome for Third Brother and Wu Hou.”
It was indeed very troublesome.
Zou Tianchang and You Shijin, the two Emptiness Realm Experts of Hong Tian City, relied on the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse and wantonly attacked the important areas of the Heavenly God Palace’s army. As such, the army of the Heavenly God Palace were momentarily unable to focus on killing the iron cavalrymen of Hong Tian City.
“The army of our Heavenly God Palace has more soldiers than the army of Hong Tian City. As for how elite our troops are, we have troops that are comparable with the Iron Cavalrymen of Hong Tian City. Moreover, many of the Iron Cavalrymen of Hong Tian City are actually just old men in armor,” the King of Beasts said. Then he added with a deep tone, “However, the two Emptiness Realm Experts, Zou Tianchang and You Shijin, are attacking the elite troops of my Heavenly God Palace, driving my troops into chaos.”
The winner would become king, and the loser would be vilified.
At this point, the Emptiness Realm Experts of Hong Tian City were prepared to die and just hoped to kill more people from the Heavenly God Palace before dying. The two Emptiness Realm Experts no longer care about their reputation.
Some moments later, the Heavenly God Palace’s army and the Iron Cavalrymen of Hong Tian City clashed forcefully.
Blood splatters flew everywhere, and broken limbs covered the ground!
The whinny of the war horses and angry roars of the soldiers rang out. At this very moment, the soldiers of the Heavenly God Palace, who were at the front line, had completely mixed in with the Iron Cavalrymen of Hong Tian City. The craziest massacre started, and at this point, the two Emptiness Realm Experts, Zou Tianchang and You Shijin, finally gave up.
“Bastards of the Heavenly God Palace, haha, do you think you can kill us brothers? Come after us!” Zou Tianchang and You Shijin shouted. The veins on their faces popped out, and both of them looked crazy.
Pei San, Su Mengte, Wu Hou, as well as the Six Legged Bladelike Chi and the Godly Thunderbolt Hawk, charged toward the two experts of Hong Tian City, aiming to encircle and kill them.
The Emptiness Realm Experts of the Heavenly God Palace and Hong Tian City finally began fighting head-on. Teng Qingshan gasped as he watched this intense fight.
“This is crazy,” Teng Qingshan remarked as his facial expression changed. “You Shijin and Zou Tianchang are looking to die.”
You Shijin and Zou Tianchang intentionally avoided Pei San as they fought head-on with the great monk, Su Mengte, and the Sovereign of Sword Sect, Li Chao. This fight was crazy. For example, when Li Chao launched his sword toward Zou Tianchang, Zou Tianchang launched his blade at Li Chao’s face instead of blocking Li Chao’s sword.
He was aiming to take a life for a life!
“It’s not weird for them to fight this madly,” the High Priestess of the Snowy Lotus Cult said with a sneer. Then she explained, “Although they are still struggling and fighting back, they know that it is the end for Hong Tian City. The survivors of Hong Tian City have hid all over the Land of the Nine Prefectures. Although these two are Emptiness Realm Experts, they have no audacity to stay with the survivors as it would reveal where the survivors are hidden.
TLN: Cuz..it is easier to detect the presence of Emptiness Realm Experts. Sad right?
“Therefore, the two of them must die.”
“However, my Elder Martial Brother’s life is much more precious than theirs,” the High Priestess of the Snowy Lotus Cult said confidently as she watched the fight between the Emptiness Realm Experts. “With father there, nothing will go wrong.”
The fighting speed of the Emptiness Realm Experts was so fast that while Teng Qingshan was speaking, they had already exchanged moves over a thousand times. The waves of air which spread about, transformed the area around them into a death zone. Smoke and dust permeated, and none of the soldiers dared to approach this area.
Occasionally, beams of light in the form of swords and blades would fly out of that area, hurting and killing some soldiers.
Pei Hao and the King of Beasts shouted, while Teng Qingshan’s facial expression grew grim.
In the distance…
Li Chao, the Sovereign of the Sword Sect, penetrated his sword into an opening between the parts of the Godly Armor that Zou Tianchang wore, piercing his waist. After all, a suit of Godly Armor was initially a suit of ordinary armor. Then an Insightful Emptiness Realm Expert refined the armor with the power of his world and transformed it into Godly Armor. However, even though it had become a suit Godly Armor, the structure and appearance would still be the same as any other suit of ordinary armor.
Likewise, this meant that this suit of Godly Armor also had openings because it is worn by attaching pieces together.
“Ahhhh~~” Zou Tianchang roared and actually held onto Li Chao’s right arm, refusing to let go.
“Let go.” Li Chao kicked Zou Tianchang. The light of the Godly Sword in his hands intensified. It had already burned Zou Tianchang’s internal organ into ashes. However, even if Emptiness Realm Experts were physically dead, they could exert control with their spirit and still live for some time more.
“Die!” Donned in the blood-red Godly Armor, You Shijin gripped one of his two metal truncheons and lunged it toward the great monk, Su Mengte. Then You Shijin took this chance to swing the two metal truncheons toward Li Chao’s head instead.
A beam of light shot out from Pei San’s hand and darted toward You Shijin.
“Ah Chao!” Pei San shouted worriedly. However, he could only go as fast as any other ordinary Emptiness Realm Experts.
“Clang!” The beam of light blasted the metal truncheon away.
“Rumble!” The Godly Thunderbolt Hawk struck You Shijin with its thunderbolt.
You Shijin could barely protect himself with the Godly Armor. Seeing that Li Chao was stuck and unable to dodge, You Shijin swung the remaining metal truncheon toward Li Chao, who could only defend the terrifying attack with his left arm.
You Shijin was like a mad man as he smashed the metal truncheon onto Li Chao’s left arm. “Whew! Whew! Whew!” Without a break, You Shijin smashed his truncheon six times both horizontally and vertically, trying every way possible to kill Li Chao. As Zou Tianchang refused to let go of Li Chao’s right arm, Li Chao had no choice but to block all the attacks with his left arm.
Normally, the first hit would have crushed Li Chao’s left arm, and the next two attacks would have crushed Li Chao’s head into pieces, killing him.
However, fortunately, Li Chao was wearing the Godly Armor.
You Shijin was attacking wildly, but the Godly Armor that Li Chao wore was simply too good!
Although an Emptiness Realm Expert was smashing Li Chao’s left arm forcefully and using the impact to crush the arm further, there was only a huge dent on the Godly Armor. The Godly Armor itself did not break at all. However, the extent of the dent on the Godly Armor clearly showed that Li Chao’s left arm was completely wrecked.
Pei San and the God of Heaven Su Mengte rushed over.
Zou Tianchang and You Shijin retreated at the same time.
“Tianchang!” You Shjin held his brother tightly.
Zou Tianchang’s eyes were already dimming slowly. He forced a smile and as blood oozed out of his mouth, he said, “Big Brother, it is a pity that we could not kill even one.” With this, Zou Tianchang’s eyes appeared completely lifeless.
The Emptiness Realm Expert Zou Tianchang was dead!
His internal organs had already been crushed. If he had not been an Emptiness Realm Expert, it would have been impossible for him to endure until now.
This series of events might seem slow, but everything had actually happened very quickly!
From the moment Li Chao pierced his sword through the gap in Zou Tiancheng’s Godly Armor until the moment Li Chao’s left arm was crushed… and then when Zou Tianchang and You Shijin retreated, not even a second had passed. The fight between the Emptiness Realm Experts was simply too fast.
“Ah Chao! Ah Chao!” Pei San held Li Chao’s left arm and shouted, “This…”
“Teacher, my arm is gone,” Li Chao clenched his teeth as he said that. His left arm was broken, and the crushed bones and flesh flowed out of the vambrace. The indentation had completely deformed the vambrace.
Pei San’s expression darkened. He felt a rage that he had never felt before.
Pei San shouted loudly. Simultaneously, the Godly Thunderbolt Hawk in the sky struck You Shijin, who held Zou Tianchang’s dead body.
“Roar~~” You Shijin hastily emitted a furious roar. This was the only sound command he had learned, the roar that was used to summon the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse.
As the roar rang out, the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse burst out of the ground.
However, the Godly Thunderbolt Hawk swooped down toward You Shijin, releasing streaks of azure and white thunderbolts. Unexpectedly, Shijin blocked the streaks of thunderbolts with the blood-red Godly Armor he wore. The Godly Thunderbolt Hawk became furious when it saw this, and it emitted a loud cry, striking You Shijin with a purely white thunderbolt.
After the release of the white thunderbolt, the Godly Thunderbolt Hawk appeared exhausted.
“Bang!” You Shijin’s entire body quivered like an ordinary human being that had been struck by lightning.
Within this instant, Pei San had caught up.
“Die!” Pei San struck with his palm in an angry manner.
“Get lost!” With red eyes, You Shijin held Zou Tianchang with one arm as he smashed the metal truncheon toward Pei San’s palm.
“Bam!” The metal truncheon was blasted away, and Pei San’s palm struck You Shijin’s chest.
You Shijin was thrown into the air, where he transformed into a stream of light and landed on the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse, who was nearby. However, the moment You Shijin descended onto the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse’s back, Pei San dashed over at lightning speed while shouting, “Die!”
“Whoosh! Whish! Whoosh!”
Three streams of light shot out of Pei San’s hand, and these three streams of light actually shot toward the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse at the same time.
“Roar~~” The Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse curled into a ball and dodged one of the streams of light. Simultaneously, it drilled into the earth and went underground.
The other two streams of light hit the Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse with piercing blows. One pierced its back, and the other stabbed into its short scaly legs… The Six-Eared Earth-Drilling Mouse emitted a painful roar, seeming to have sensed just how daunting Pei San was as it hastily drilled into the ground.
It immediately disappeared!
“Chase after him. You Shijin was struck by my palm. Quickly!” Pei San’s voice rang in the ears of every Emptiness Realm Expert present. “Retrieve the two sets of Godly Armor!”
“Bladelike Chi,” Pei San summoned the Six Legged Bladelike Chi.
However, at this moment, the Six Legged Bladelike Chi was flapping its wings and flying toward Teng Qingshan.
